The DioField Chronicle Preview - is this Square's underdog JRPG? | TheSixthAxis

Is there room for The DioField Chronicle amidst all the current JRPG hype? At first glance, it may not stand out from Square’s 2022 lineup, though there are some interesting ideas at play through the demo – available to all from tomorrow, 10th August.

I’ll buy this at some point for my collection at least but strategy RPGs have to be really good for me to like them .
There are some really good ones from time to time .
Fire Emblem Three Houses was great and I’m looking forward to the Tactics Ogre remake/remaster on PlayStation as that’s one of the best all time but they have to be near those games quality for me to like them .
Graphics aren’t the biggest factor for me with these games . It doesn’t have to be big budget to be good . I don’t want Battletoads type graphics I hate that cheap style but mostly anything else.
. Its the combat , characters and their moves/weapons etc and having a very good story that mean the most .
Hopefully it’s a good one as I do enjoy a great strategy jrpg from time time .
It reminds of Fire Emblem a bit of , it looks good so far .

I've played this game and it has potential to be one of my personal GOAT games.

beautiful presentation, smooth, challenging gameplay so far. if they nail the story/dialogue... easy favourite.
